The Phoenix Male Voice Choir will be performing their Christmas concert at Mile Cross Methodist Church in aid of East Anglia's Children's Hospices.

Featuring well-known Christmas carols, seasonal songs, and opportunities for our audience to join in, the evening also features solo contributions from within its own singing ranks and from the accompanist’s piano. The Choir is led as usual by its long-standing Musical Director Sarah Grimes and the Choir Accompanist is Jason Lambert.

Tickets (£8) are now on sale from www.norwichphoenixmvc.org/tix.html  with admittance on the night for non-ticket holders from 7.00pm, with all major debit and credit cards accepted at the door.
Tue 13 Dec
The day will be based on teachings of Mike Endicott, Rev Prior of the Order of Jacob’s Well, and the retreat leader will be David Males.
The morning will start with a time of praise and prayer, followed by a Bible-based talk and discussion on how we might prepare ourselves to come into the Lord’s presence. Looking at the Good News of the Kingdom and the Cross helps us to better understand God’s overwhelming generosity and love. 
After coffee we spend the rest of the morning seeking the healing grace of Jesus for ourselves and for those we love. In the afternoon we look further at the wonders God has for all of us, His precious children. 
Finally, we explore how we might hear His voice and then spend time seeking Him through a meditation based on John 4 (the woman at the well).
The days start at 10am. To book your place, or for more information, please contact Quiet Waters Christian Retreat, Flixton Road, Bungay, NR35 1PD,  mail@quietwaters.org.uk, 01986 893201.
There is a suggested cost £25 for the day to include cooked lunch, refreshments and retreat handouts. We are happy to accept whatever you are led to or able to pay.

Norwich Community Gospel Choir warmly invite you to a concert 'Darkness to Light', a celebration of Christmas.
Showings at 5.15pm and 7.30pm
Tickets £10 (£8 concessions) email hello@ncgc.org.uk

This is such a special event, somewhere halfway between a Gospel concert and a carol service. It begins in total darkness, with hundreds of candles to be lit throughout over the course of the event as a beautiful image of the arrival of Jesus, Light of the World.
If you're looking for something to bring friends to, or just a new way to hear and celebrate the story of Christmas this year, this one is for you.
Sun 18 Dec
Adat Yeshua Synagogue, Essex Street, Norwich
It’s Chanukah time again! Adat Yeshua Synagogue on Essex Street Norwich will be celebrating the First Night with the traditional candle lighting ceremony in the Synagogue.
The celebration begins at 6pm and will last 30-45 minutes.
Come and share our joy, sing the traditional songs and remember the victory of over 2000 years ago. There will also be a short talk on the meaning of Chanukah and its place in Judaism and Messiah. Free doughnuts (the traditional food for Chanukah) will be available after the service.
